THIS MEETUP IS ON HALLOWEEN NIGHT!
and BORDERLANDS DOES NOT HAVE WIFI!!!
I don't expect a big turn out but I will be there (maybe in costume) ready to write so if you'd like to duck into the cafe for an hour or so before moving onto your next celebration or you don't have much going on that night and want to lay down some words, feel free to join me.
Now for the reminders:
We are set up in the back of the cafe. Look for the Meetup sign.
Please check in with me when you arrive. Because we are in a public space with people who will not be there for the meetup, I won't know necessarily know you're there for Shut Up & Write.
This is a one hour session of focused, productive writing. No one will look at what you've written when the meetup is over.
Here's how it works.
6:40 pm - brief introductions ("My name is Cindy and I'm writing a ____").
I'll set the timer and we'll write for an hour.
7:40 pm - the timer goes off, the writing session is over.
People can continue to work, chat, or take off as they like. Borderlands closes at 8:00 pm.
PLEASE NOTE: We've noticed the cafe has been getting noisier as of late and other patrons of the coffee shop who are not there for the meetup are occasionally distracting for some so bring your ear buds and music if you need to block out distraction! There are plenty of electrical outlets, so no worries about making sure your laptop battery is fully charged. AND: Parking can be challenging, so use public transit if possible or leave plenty of time to find a spot; there's more parking south of Valencia if you don't mind walking a few blocks.
I look forward to seeing you all on Thursday for another productive session.
